Ofsted is the Office for Standards in Education, Children's Services and Skills. They report directly to Parliament and are independent and impartial. They inspect and regulate services which care for children and young people, and those providing education and skills for learners of all ages.
We were inspected by OFSTED in September 2007 and were very pleased with their extremely positive report which stated that “North Farnborough Infants is an outstanding school”. It confirmed too, that “Pupils learn effectively and make good progress because teachers have high expectations of work and behaviour.”
Following on from this in March 2011 OFSTED carried out an interim assessment on us that found that ‘performance has been sustained’ and that we continue to be an outstanding school. Ofsted says "Maintained primary and secondary schools and academies that were judged to be outstanding in their overall effectiveness in their most recent section 5 inspection are exempt from inspection under section 5. If Her Majesty's Chief Inspector (HMCI) or the Secretary of State has concerns about the performance of an exempt school, HMCI has powers to inspect at any time under section 8 of the Act".
Every year Hampshire carry out a review with us based on our self assessment and the most recent agreed with our findings that we maintain the outstanding category.
